Darna Village is a family-run hotel & dive resort on Aqaba's South Beach, overlooking the beautiful Red Sea, with excellent snorkeling and diving locations are within a few minutes reach.
Why Stay At South Beach?
Leave the hassle and bustle of the town behind you and relax! If you travelled through Jordan, walked all along Petra and trekked in Wadi Rum, you deserve a few days of doing nothing but enjoying the sea.
Grab a dive mask and let us show you the beautiful coral formations and colorful fish species of the Red Sea!
You can still experience the evening buzz of the the souk as Aqaba downtown is only a 10-minute drive from South Beach.
YOU choose the time when you want to wake up! It suprises many, who've never been to the Middle East before, that in the cities you are often ‘forced’ to wake up at dawn. The call for prayer nowdays transmitted from loudspeakers all around the cities so that it can be heared everywhere.
NOT on South Beach, though. Here you can wake up to the wind, the waves of the sea or twittering of birds.
How about a nice walk or jogging on the beach before breakfast? This is something you can only do if you stay at South Beach.
Watch the sunset from the beach while sipping sweet mint tea after dinner.
Darna means 'our home' in Arabic and we live up to our name. We built this hotel as we would build our own home: carefully choosing good quality materials for the buildings and all facilities. We look after Darna Village as we take care of our home, and we also take care of YOU as we look after our house guests.
Amongst all Aqaba budget hotels and dive villages at South Beach, Darna Village is located closest to the sea. The beach is right across the road, you can enjoy the seaview from your window.
Darna Divers Village is located on Aqaba's South Beach Road, 12 kms south of downtown.
